Shapes of objects are reduced to basic forms that hover between a human and simplified zoomorphic outline. Each has a technological implant that invites us to establish dialog with them. They are related to otherwise abstract agents of artificial intelligence that crawl, analyse and regulate our surrounding, but due to the many benefits they offer us, we don't object. Supermono 2/3 is a tactile, audio and visual digital environment. Various sized black fleece objects are given various tasks. Some produce sounds, some transmit signals and send them into processing, while others play pre-processed sounds and video. In this work we are monitored by objects that seem approachable. Our movements and touches are translated into oscillations and reverberations. Supermono 2/3 and other objects from the series open up questions of the Internet of Things, which is omnipresent, unavoidable, that tracks us through its many sensors, and spills out data that are comprehensible to us only to a certain extent.
